Creamy kick, great for dipping!

When you think dressings, few – if any – come to mind faster than ranch dressing. And there’s good reason. Ranch dressing is like the Swiss army knife of dressings. It’s great on salad, perfect as a chip or vegetable dip, and oh so tasty with chicken wings – just to name a few uses. Now let’s add some fire to it.

Jalapeño ranch dressing puts the screws to the traditional creaminess, adding a little tang to boot. It’s tasty with everything regular ranch is tasty with, just with extra kick. It’s a quick go-to dressing for anyone who loves spicy foods.
